date: 04.19.2012 (Greenwich Mean Time) re: Soul Searching??? message: ok..my take is this...you are a very go go person....and as long as you go go..your mind stay very busy too. This might be the time for some insight..give yourself its due...time with not a lot on your plate...this is part of the "reason" and "how to" for the soul searching.
